Yup.  I'm looking at the expanded version of this thread, and the message
before your reply and after Terri Oda's is mine.  It appears as "Ivan Van
Laningham to mailman-users", with my name in yellow (arbitrary color: yours
is red, Terri's is purple, Cameron's is green).

Now, gmail may, behind the scenes, insert a link to the sent folder, but
from a user's perspective it looks exactly like any other message in the
thread, except that to the left of my name is a very small (i.e., 8x8
pixels) light grey round icon with a white x in it.  I don't want to push it
in case it tells gmail "Delete the entire thread this is associated with."
